    Birthday
    Today is a very special day, it’s the day I was born. June 9th 1999 at 1:04 P.M. I was a newborn baby. There were no problems with my birth, and it was only minutes before I was fully out into the new world.

    First steps
    On this day when I was a baby I took my first steps, it’s a little ironic because December 9th is my half birthday. We lived in an apartment which is not where we live now. My dad he worked night shifts so he stayed with me during the day and my mom stayed with me during the night. It was about 1:00 pm that afternoon and there I was in the middle of the living room it was lunch time for this baby. My dad told me that I stood up and I ran into the kitchen and he was the only one that saw me run.

    Today I started 7th grade, this is really important to me. This is the school year I’ve learned to be more myself you know. Have more friends and to be the nice one. Last year is what made me realize that I wasn’t being myself.
